An FAA Communication Failure has arisen in the Eastern U.S., originating in Atlanta, Georgia. Flights across the country will be affected by the failure.
With 5,700 flights in the air, flights are being brought down because of this sudden glitch that has affected all of the flight plans. Air traffic controllers are battling to keep an eye on all flights, but are successful so far.
Major delays should be expected.
The FAA does not know what is the cause of this system-wide glitch. There are no concerns of planes crashing into each other.
Delays are becoming widespread, and should be expected until the problem passes, the system comes back online, or the problem is figured out.
